Samsung according to various reports was expected to launch its upcoming Galaxy S20 smartphones with 120Hz refresh rate displays at the highest resolution. However, now according to the leakster IceUniverse, Samsung has changed its mind and will only be providing the 120Hz refresh rate at the full HD resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate at the WQHD resolution.
According to the latest tweet by IceUniverse, Samsung has cancelled the WQHD 120Hz option for the Galaxy S20 series. Thus, leaving only full HD at 60Hz, full HD at 120Hz and WQHD at 60Hz as options.
Samsung has not said anything on this matter, so until it does, we urge you to take this report with a pinch of salt as anything might change ahead of the product launch. The company is set to launch the upcoming Galaxy S20 series along with its Galaxy Fold 2 smartphone at its Unpacked event on February 11, which is when we will get to know more about the devices and their specifications.
It can now be said with certainty that Samsung has cancelled the WQHD 120Hz option of the Galaxy S20 series, leaving only FHD 60Hz, FHD 120Hz, WQHD 60Hz. this means that we can’t have the best resolution and the best refresh rate at the same time.
